I’m back! – A Master List of Book Releases of June and July + Reviews!

Featured

It has been a long hiatus, though to me it didn't seem to be one. Time flies. June and July have flied by so fast, and I can't keep up, shit things happening one after the other, and I'm still coping... But it's a process. I'm functioning now enough to write and interact on this blog. As I promised, this first post is a list of June releases (from June 3rd) and the reviews I found about them until now. You're all welcome to let me know if you have a review that I forgot to add. Since July is also over, I'm also sharing this month's books and reviews. Welcome back on Swift Coffee, everyone!

‘The Summer House in Santorini’ by Samantha Parks

Romance, in itself, existing only for itself, is definitely not my go-to genre, as probably you all have already noticed by now. The reason I chose to read this novel anyways is that it's set on Santorini. No, it's not my dream destination. I've already visited. And LOVED it. I was thirteen, I was on a trip with my father and it was amazing! Since a while I've been wanting to go back as an adult, though there are so many places to visit in this world and so little time, why would I go back to where I already was...? It's an eternal dilemma. Anyway, I decided to read this book because I wanted to get back to Santorini a little. And that happened.

‘Christmas by the Lighthouse’ by Rebecca Boxall

I know Christmas is already a month away, so it's not a very good timing for this review, though if I'm being honest I have to warn all to-be-readers of this book: 'Christmas by the Lighthouse' has very little to do with either Christmas or Lighthouses. I do see where this title comes from, but it still somehow seems to be a bit of a false advertisement. Anyway, let's talk about the book itself!
